As hinted first on ALL ACCESS (see NET NEWS 8/1), former CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WKSC (KISS 103.5)/CHICAGO night slammer JAVA JOEL MURPHY has indeed landed the night slot on sister Top 40 WAKS (96.5 KISS-FM)/CLEVELAND.
Commented WAKS PD BO MATTHEWS, "I was looking for someone that isn't a DJ -- but is a personality. Someone that can make noise -- someone that can change nights in CLEVELAND. I am confident that we found him. I am excited to hear JAVA back in CLEVELAND. I'm sure stations will be callinG and he will be trackinG other places from here, much like he did from CHICAGO."
Added JAVA, "This is an ideal situation all 'round -- reunited with CLEAR CHANNEL, back on the radio in CLEVELAND and, most of all, being able to work with some of the most innovative, passionate and *fearless* radio people in the industry today -- BO MATTHEWS, KASPER, KEVIN METHENY. It is a privilege and an honor ... I am eternally grateful."
